I have a Devillbiss TARV-5050 compressor. Can you tell me what the CFM rating is?
(Gimli , Manitoba, Canada)
I need to order a new gun for my sandblasting cabinet. It currently has a 5/16" ID knozzle. Just wonding if the 5050 has enough CFM to run this gun? Or if I should go down a size?
Jim, I couldn't find the specs for this compressor.
What's the HP of the motor? You can expect to get around 3-4 CFM of compressed air at 90 PSI for each HP of motor.

5hp Devilbiss crankcase ventilation
I recently got a 60 gallon, 5hp Devilbiss compressor from a friend that doesn't want to put 220 in his garage.
I traded him a 25 gallon Craftsman single cylinder unit.
We both feel as though we got a good deal, but I want to make sure I have the set up right on this compressor.
I put a new air filter on it and cleaned the intake really good.
I got it warm, drained the oil and put synthetic 30wt in the crankcase.
I timed the cut in/out and it seemed to be in spec. It cuts in at 100psi and out at 140psi and does so in 1 minute 20 seconds.
I installed a regulator and set it at 90psi.
The only thing i'm not completely comfortable with is the crankcase vent. It is wide open. There is no filter element. I don't have a manual and can't find anything online about this issue. The vent is a plate with 4 screws that bolts to the side of the crankcase right at the crank center. The plate has a tube that extends about 2" above the crank center. I would assume there should be something in that tube to keep debris from possibly entering the crankcase. Do you have a suggestion?
Bob, does this model have an oil sight glass, or is it possible that the tube you refer to is where there used to be a dip stick inserted. The dip stick cap would have come with a small opening to allow venting.
Anyone else with a 5 HP Devilbiss can comment on this?
DeVilbiss 6.5 hp two stage. Pump model is ABP-459. 59N0060KX0919 - squealing noise?
80 gallon/6.5 hp two stage. Pump model is ABP-459. sticker on pump also says 59N0060KX0919.
Compressor seems to run well but has recently started making a high pitch squeel after about 15 seconds of running time or as I start to see pressure build. The squeel seems to definately be coming from the top of the head. Possible cause? I'm thinking of selling it to a friend and don't want to feel guilty if its going to be a costly repair.
